The developers of jQuery recently announced in a blog entry that jQuery 2.0 will drop support for legacy versions of Internet Explorer. The release will come in parallel with version 1.9, however, which will include support for older versions of IE. The versions will offer full API compatibility, but 2.0 will 'benefit from a faster implementation that doesn't have to rely on legacy compatibility hacks.

6 and 7 I would drop. However I know a number of people that use IE8 including an entire organization. If organizations have standards you need to look out for them, otherwise their at work experiences could carry over to their everyday life.

It only removes for oddities: "removed support for IE 6/7/8 oddities such as borked event model, IE7 “attroperties”, HTML5 shims, etc."
